Now that the revised Conditions of Participation (CoP) have taken effect, are you ready for your next CMS survey? One of the major areas CMS surveyors will be focused on is the standard involving care planning, coordination of services, and care quality. CMS expects patients and caregivers to actively participate in a unique, integrated assessment and plan of care. Facilities where this doesn’t happen are at risk for deficiencies. 

During this can’t-miss webinar, you’ll learn how to comply with all the new guidance involving the importance of including patients and representatives in assessment and planning. Plus, you’ll get tips to coordinate all services provided by the care team, including agencies, physicians, and patients. 

National home health expert Sharon Litwin, RN, BSHS, MHA, will cover all of the above and answer your most pressing questions (for example, do you need to rewrite the plan of care and get a new signature upon receipt of a verbal order?). She’ll also share what needs to be in the individualized plan of care and how detailed it must be to avoid citations.
